Hitman 2 Sets Sights on GameCube

Eidos Interactive, one of the world's leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, announces that the No.1 selling Hitman 2: Silent Assassin is to be released on GameCube. Since its release on PlayStation 2, PC and Xbox in October this year, the game has enjoyed worldwide success having shipped in excess of one million units. Hitman 2: Silent Assassin on GameCube is currently being developed by IO Interactive and will be released in Spring 2003.

Mike McGarvey, ceo of Eidos says: "GameCube owners worldwide are crying out for more mature content and Hitman 2: Silent Assassin fits the bill perfectly. The game has taken the world by storm and we are confident that this success will be repeated on the GameCube platform."

Janos Flösser, managing director of IO Interactive says: "With an installed base of millions, there is a massive potential audience for a game like Hitman 2: Silent Assassin. We are very impressed with the GameCube and feel that Hitman 2 and the Cube is a perfect match."

In Hitman 2: Silent Assassin you must enter the mind of a genetically engineered assassin Codename 47, whose deadly efficiency is now needed more than ever. Lured back into a global ring of deception, you must kill not only to make a living, but to continue living. This time it's not just business. It's personal.

The game's storyline begins in a Sicilian monastery. Codename 47 has been attempting to distance himself from his violent past, however the local criminal underworld discover his true identity and blackmail him into returning to his trade. Caught in the middle of a ring of deception, Codename 47 soon discovers that he has been manipulated and the hunter must now watch his back, as he has become the hunted.
